No really, I am. I may not have been
very active posting AT ALL lately, but I have been creating layouts and cards in my little craft cave.
I’ve also been reading a lot of fiction books, watching a lot of YouTube videos and playing a lot of Candy Crush. Basically doing whatever I can to avoid dealing with this site! Although, in my defense (somewhat), I have been following a lot of classes over at Creative Live in an attempt to jump start my brain and this site.
My everyday life is hectic. Kids activities + my work schedule + my husbands schedule + all those “mommy” things we’re supposed to do, like grocery shop and menu plan, don’t leave a lot of time or energy for things like creating. Let alone blogging about what I’ve managed to find time to create! I know I’m preaching to the choir here when I say that 24 is just not enough hours in a day for all I “need” to do!
Right now we are pretty much in summer mode – 2 weeks early thanks to a Teacher’s strike. The pace seems slower somehow. By the end of this week all regular activities will be over. No more swim lessons or dance or field hockey or soccer. My youngest had her Preschool Graduation today and her wrap up party is Wednesday. I can taste the lazy mornings, afternoons playing on the Slip ‘N’ Slide and evenings when the kids play outside til bed time. Oh wait, that’s right. I work evenings. Scratch that last part. I guess I just get the lazy days. But the illusion of more time has my mind churning with how to get back on the blogging horse.
Just keeping it real people. This is going to be rough!
Oh, and while I being honest, I have been feeling a bit of a pull away from purely sharing my creative (cough, cough) genius and more toward sharing a bit about my life. Lessons learned. Lessons learning. Observations. I was told today that I am a good writer. That my posts are highly ‘literate’. Hmm, time to test that out I think!
What do you think? Are you up for it?
